Elon Musk reveals his likely Presidential candidate for 2024 election

Elon Musk tweeted on June 15 that he is leaning toward voting for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential election and anticipated a “red tsunami” in 2022. Musk said he hasn’t decided whether or not he would vote for a Republican for president in answer to a query from a prominent Tesla fan account on Twitter. Musk said, “DeSantis,” when asked who he is leaning toward. DeSantis, a Republican, has yet to declare his candidacy for president in 2024.

Donald Trump, the former president, is largely anticipated to run for president again. Musk began the debate on Twitter by stating that he had voted for the first time in his life for a Republican in a special election in Texas’ 34th Congressional District. Musk voted for Mayra Flores, who was elected in a mainly Hispanic area that has always supported for Democrats. “I voted for Mayra Flores – my first Republican vote,” Musk stated. “In 2022, there will be a massive crimson wave.”

Flores got 51 percent of the vote in the special election, according to Decision Desk HQ, with more than 95 percent of the ballots collected at 11:09 p.m. ET on June 14. Dan Sanchez, a Democrat, garnered 43.3 percent of the vote. Former Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Texas), who left last spring to work for Akin Gump, a Washington law and lobbying firm, will be replaced by Flores for the duration of the term.

Flores declared in a victory speech on June 14 that he would be “forever thankful.” “We’ve been taken for granted for the last 100 years.” Republicans around the country have thrown their support behind Flores, thinking that Latinos in South Texas share conservative worries about border security and the economy.

The chance to shatter the South Texas blue wall has boosted Republican hopes of flipping the area red and regaining control of the House of Representatives. Musk originally announced his intention to vote Republican in a tweet last month. On May 18, Musk stated, “In the past, I voted Democrat because they were (mainly) the compassion party.”

“However, they have turned into a party of division and hatred, therefore I will no longer vote for them and instead vote Republican.” Musk is in the process of buying Twitter and turning it into a private firm. The billionaire also said that he would vote for Democrat Andrew Yang in the 2020 presidential race. In a tweet, Musk said, “I backed Yang last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning.”
